Demand Dignity Update

Here’s a taste of our upcoming Demand Dignity Report.

Slums – Cambodia
The Australian Embassy remains a problem in Cambodia and will not speak out against the forced evictions that are happening across the country. The next report, tentatively due in the fourth quarter this year, will focus on the impact of forced evictions on women. Recommendations will include legal and judicial reform. There is scope to coordinate with other sections around action on this campaign.

*Maternal mortality – Indonesia
The Indonesia maternal mortality report will be launched on 16 September 2010 in Geneva. The focus will be on gender discrimination as the underlying barrier to accessing maternal health services. Key issues include:
The impact of discrimination on policy and law
Access to contraception
Consent from husbands
Discrimination against women living in poverty

The full report will be released soon, look out for it on the blog and on our website!
